Strange doesn’t have to mean all-new.
Things I’ve been doing for years are strange.
Just ask my mother.
Many of my recent Strange But Good recipe creations were born out of old favorites. Re-imaginations, if you will.
Oatmeal has always been a sweet treat for me. When we had oatmeal as a kid (usually on a Brinner night), it was doused with brown sugar and raisins. And butter. When mom wasn’t looking, I added more.
I cannot believe I’m on obese.
I’ve seen versions of savory oats on Instagram and finally had to try it for myself. Boy, am I glad I did!
I took my davory oats in the direction of Mexico. I did cook my oats with cinnamon, but the toppings made that cinnamon a savory compliment.
Savory Mexican Oatmeal
- 1/2 C oatmeal (cooked)
- Cinnamon, to taste
- Runny egg
- Black bean salsa
- Nutritional Yeast
Prepare oatmeal as usual, adding cinnamon. Place cooked oatmeal in a bowl and add toppings. Devour.
Cauliflower pizzas have been an obsession for a while now. I took my (cheese-less) crust and topped it with seafood Strange But Goodness:
Salmon Cauliflower Pizza
- Cauliflower pizza crust
- Wasabi paste
- Yellow Pepper
- Red Onion
The following day I repeated the crust recipe, except I turned it into pizza minis! These were awesome to keep in the fridge during the week for little pizzas, or re-heated under the broiler to make crackers for my salad.
One Cauliflower Crust recipe gives you 4 minis.
Yesterday I tried another version. This one is Teriyaki Chicken with Mango and Papayas. I can’t get over how good these are! Fruit in jerky… who would have thought?!

Junk-Free January is still going strong! I've been experimenting with a high-fat diet... and I'll post about that on Monday. It's been an adventure.
Have you ever made savory oats?
